provided in the approval for the use for this very type of pilot, that in fact it was found the funding at the request of someone in fact commissioner tiny of marin, so that this kind of a pilot that we're talking about could be funded with this money. so the idea that was put out there, that somehow this is not what this funding was intended for, respectfully is not happened at the mtc. but the main point that i want to make is this. you know, i don't know that anyone herei0÷s=úÑ questions the importance of investing in the maintenance of muni, and improving the reliability of the system, and making sure that we have a system that works for every rider. but the notion that we have to choose between that and actually making public transit affordable to low income kids, to me, is a false choice. the two are not mutually exclusive. in fact, as mr. reiskin himself noted during the hearing, and as was noted during the presentation of the tpi funding, the money that has been allocated for san francisco, it's money that can be used for different things. and the fact that the mta board of d
. a lot of students inform us they cannot use their tuition fees or tuition things to housing. they actually still have to get a job. so, there is a need for affordable housing for families, students, seniors and everyone. therefore, that's why we worked diligently with our allies and you supervisors to ensure that we have a cap to really see and analyze that this is a need. and we really appreciate you hearing our concerns and we look forward to working with the planning staff to actually look over those analysis. thank you again and we hope to -- that you support this legislation. >> thank you. i don't have any other cards. so, if anyone after mr. cohen is interested in speaking, you can just go ahead and line up. >>> good afternoon, supervisors. tim cohen on behalf of the housing action coalition. i'd like to support the proposed legislation for new housing product efficiency dwelling units with one important exception. we have said repeatedly that edus are a logical necessary response for badly needed new housing in an extremely expensive housing market. edus have long bee
for us to commit resources as a city is really important. and what i understand of this item is that there is a discussion about whether or not to tie the funding that's underlying this item to the rainy day fund. and to the extent that happens, to the extent that there is a connection between this appropriation and the rainy day fund, i will not support it. the rainy day fund was created for the very purpose of this city making public education a priority. the rainy day fund, as was enacted by the board of supervisors, as was crafted by then supervisor ammiano has to stand on its own terms, it has its own triggers, its own mechanisms for deciding what exactly the school district gets. and to the extent that we are trying to use this supplemental appropriation as a09( #ta way of minimizing the amount given to the school district through the rainy day fund i have a problem with that. so to the extent that this item comes back to us in the form where it is tied to the rainy day fund, i will not be supporting it, and i would encourage parents and folks in the public school commu
. the 6.7 million that is allocated for this project, 22% is going to be used for pilot project for the free muni for youth. the other 76%'s going to be used for maintenance. i don't know why. supervisor scott wiener is youth. this is something that we should consider as an important issue for our community. looking at the demographics, in terms of people opposing this project, just white women, rich, and majority of people of low income folks here, they support this project. i don't believe that this is something that is unsustainable. i think that the equity is there. there is funding for it. it's a pilot project that we can go forward and have it move -- be implemented. my last thing is that we should change the way we think in this city. this city is for everybody. we have to recognize san francisco values. we have to support everyone, not just blacks, latinos, asians, lives here. the way the debate was going, it's so racist and prejudicial. we have to stop the discrimination thing in the ci city. >> supervisor wiener: is there any additional public comment? okay. mr. chairm
new hybrid buses that will be coming to us this spring, an exceptionally fast procurement cycle by previous standards. thanks to john haley's leadership, to significantly streamline that process and get those buses much sooner than we would have otherwise. he also have -- you also have approved contract for rehab of a bunch of our existing buses in addition to the lrv fleet we have programmed which i'll speak about in a moment. in these overhaul projects we're identifying the components on the vehicles that are the most prone to failure, getting them replaced or rehabilitated. the results so far, the ones that come out of rehab for backup, for lack of a better term, perform much better than the rest of the group which has direct impact on the performance of the system. and the new buses you approved were hybrid buses. we have trolley bus procurement coming right on the heels of that. estate division as well as with the union on making sure we have adequate restroom facilities for operators. it may seem not very much related, but having decent, clean, safe rrmt restrooms for r op
this reporting. and then hopefully there will be a time when advocates and this board, land use committee, or planning and moh can come to some kind of consensus to define that housing between 120 and 150. so i think the fact that we're including it is some kind of acknowledgement that in fact this does include middle income because of, you know, some of the way it's been viewedm 4t regionally and there seems to be, in my mind, some -- still i'd just rather than-d you know, remove it, just kind of not include the name for now, and then maybe come back to that at a later time when there's more time for discussion. that's all. >> president chiu: supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim: thank you. amendment. i'm familiar but i just want to -- >> supervisor olague: i thought it was going to be distributed. >> supervisor kim: if someone can give me a copy that will be great. i'll say a couple of things. you know, i was hesitant a couple of weeks ago about including 120 to 150, not because i don't think we should calculate it but i was curious as to how we would calculate it. when we build
& associates because they helped us with our last search and gave us a really good group of folks to choose from. looking back, we can have opinions about it, but we had a really good process. it was -- they delivered. so, i mean, i trust that all three that are being recommended have that kind of a history. so, i'm really happy that we're at this place and would love to move this forward. or as recommended. >> any more questions? commissioner lee. >> what's the next step? what's the next step after we [speaker not understood]? >> we would recommend that you allow us an opportunity to do some vetting on the proposals. once the vetting is completed, it would be our hope that you allow us to communicate with the president sort of any findings that are outside of the norm in terms of what we'd expect on proposals. it would be, i think, in our collective interest to begin the contracting process as soon as a decision is made on a selected vendor. and i'm uncertain in terms of how you want to get to the decision of the [inaudible]. the sooner we're able to do that, we would at the department of
. there's one more small item i want your attention on. you can use muni fast pass as a tool to teacher students accountability, responsibility and also you can use it to inspire their parents to guide the youth and the other main point is don't use it as a tool to criminalize youth like those being done in san francisco. thanks. >> supervisor wiener: thank you. next speaker. >> good morning, speakers. tenderloin youth leadership program. as part of my job i go to all high schools all over the l city recruiting kids to join the program and i hear all too much the common stories of students who can't afford to go to school, actually students that end up missing several days a year, costing the san francisco a lot of money, as we're not getting paid when they're not in school. also, so many teachers tell me how they have to take so many to help students get to school and back home to commute. it's a very unfortunate thing that i hear all too much. the 70% youth discount is just not enough. every other city provides free public transportation to and from school except this city. also, it's
's district as well. i think many of us came into the work of public service to fulfill the government's mission in areas like this, to ensure that we are really protecting, defending our most vulnerable residents, and helping property owners to follow the law. and so this particular case of september 12 of this year, all the violations have been corrected and the building has been restored to a livable state for 48 families that reside on this property. so i want to take this time and acknowledge the members of our city family that actually make this happen. we can legislate law. we can talk about building code. but there are people that actually go out there and make that law reality for the residents here in san francisco. so i want to thank rosemary, james, james, david, and allen davidson. we want to recognize you today for your outstanding work protecting the basic living conditions of 48 san francisco families living at 245 leavenworth over the last three years. thank you for your leadership in abating 423 housing code+nc'p violations and restoring the building to a livable sta
. 6, replicate upjohn comparison studies using san francisco data to apply findings to the san francisco pension fund. with this one i would disagree. i think we are doing more than additional analysis and i don't think we need to plug our numbers into a formula put together by some other people. i think we do more than enough analysis and i would disagree with this recommendation. >> supervisor chiu: and for the same reason that i disagreed with finding 7 i would disagree with this as well. >> supervisor elsbernd: madam clerk, i think that fills in the budget analyst have we responded appropriately? okay. with those changes if we could send this item=jpy forward with recommendation, that would be the order. any other items in front of the committee? >> alisa miller: no, no further matters. >> supervisor elsbernd: thank you everyone for your patience. we arei%( uíááy >> feel like it really is a community. they are not the same thing, but it really does feel like there's that kind of a five. everybody is there to enjoy a literary reading. >> the best lit in san francisco. fr

,e jpvz mr. mayor. mr. mayor, with the november election behind us our federal delegation is contending with potentially significant budget sequestration. have you examined what some of the potential impacts of these cuts may be to the city programs and services, particularly those that serve the poor and those in federally subsidized housing? >> mayor lee: thank you, supervisor, for raising this important issue. while we recently avoided state trigger cuts with the passage of proposition 30 we're not out of the woods yet. we all need to focus very closely on the fiscal cliff and sequestration cuts that it includes. the impacts on san francisco could be devastating. until we have more clarity, what congress as a whole might or might not do we will need to remain vigilant about protecting our reserves and the city's financial position. that said i'm encouraged by the reelection of president obama and certainly for the leadership that leader pelosi has given and will continue to give. we will need their leadership as the president must quickly face the challenge of his second term, avoidi

not shelter from the weather, or restroom facilities. a much more sensitive use to the environment and community would be to use the degaussing station as a clubhouse for the kids so they have shelter, restroom facilities, and a place to store their equipment. if rec and park doesn't want to pay for it, even though they just received about $200 million, i would be willing to fund it myself as a contribution to the city. i'm looking for six votes here. who want to put the environment and the welfare of the children ahead of the dollars of a restaurant lease. do the right thing. and vote against this restaurant lease on december 4. and with all due respect, supervisor farrell, i ask you again, with the association, with the hospitality industry, and$á( mz your own father pitchg this restaurant, do the decent and honorable thing and recuse yourself from this vote. thank you. >> president chiu: i want to remind the public there's a rule in the board chamber that we not address individual members in your public comment. if you could address all your comments to the full board. thank yo
also, as supervisor olague said, is not good use of our time and i will be voting no on it as well. >> president chiu: is there further discussion? supervisor wiener. >> supervisor wiener: thank you. thank you arbitration colleagues, for your comments. i just want to make a few points. first of all -- and some of the points i've heard today are some that some of the opposite have raised as well. to suggest this is not important enough or worthy of our time i did a little research and we could go back and i could probably find some resolutions and ordinances from pretty much every member of this body, that would -- that may fall into that category, that are not the most but that actually matter in a lot of people's lives. and so if the new rule is that this board can only take up matters that are somehow monumental, while i really would be interested in that discussion, our agendas would be much lighter, and but that would be a new way of doing business at the board of supervisors. and it would be different than probably the way we've operated where, as a board of supervisors, we're
to imply and actually stated, every three years the board goes through this exact process. they use actual positions in the current portfolio and they go forward and model those to try and find out obviously weighing return for risk, what would be the best and most prudent way to sort of change the composition of the portfolio. >> supervisor elsbernd: i'm sorry, jay. i'll get back to you because you mentioned one other thing i forgot to ask when he spoke. risk. we've gone through a big process over the last few years, by our former cao over risk analysis. can you put on the record with a quee are doing at the retirement system. >> as far back as seven years ago there were business plan initiatives that the board adopted. the main noaks was to learn how to measure risk. the progress we've made is we've purchased software, we've pnch purchased systems in order to measure risk and once we can do that we can monitor risk and the board will have more information under which to make -- >> supervisor elsbernd: not just the board but the public. all of this will be done through the public board an

that use the area, walk their dogs, walk by on a daily basis. and as earlier noted there were also numerous articles in the newspaper, such as the marina times, the chronicle, the examiner. there was plenty of opportunity for folks to understand this project was happening. in addition, we have been working, as was noted earlier, with the marina community association, through various meetings with them, for over two years. and every single one of our hearings at the rec and park commission which we had hearings around the release for request for proposals, the selection of woodhouse, and two hearings on the lease negotiation -- pardon me the negotiated lease agreement, all of those were publicly noticed throughout all of the city's mandated public notice requirements on our website. we also, our commission secretary sends out an agenda via e-mail or mail that has requested that agendas be sent to them on a weekly or monthly basis. we've exhaustive outreach. i'm happy to read the organizations, if that's like me to do as well. >> supervisor chiu: that's part of the record that's appropriate.
